SURGERY FOR CONGENITAL HEART DISEASES

Our center is a pioneer in the treatment of children and adults with congenital cardiac disease. It is the first and only clinic in Cyprus to provide this type of care. In the first year of operation, more than 50 complex operations on children and adults with congenital heart diseases were performed, many of which were performed for the first time in Cyprus, such as pulmonary valve replacement, ASD closure, VSD closure, PDA closure, tetralogy of Fallot correction, and aortic isthmus stenosis correction.
The vast majority of these patients would have had surgery in another country. Permanent collaboration with specialized pediatric cardiologists from abroad, as well as the Kindeherzen Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Germany, is critical for the successful treatment of these patients.
